Dukes 92

A handpicked selection of wines and carefully crafted cocktails are paired with a huge terrace at this Mosley Street hideaway. Check out Dukes 92 next time you're looking for a chilled out drink, as this sprawling space is suited to all occasions.

The Woodstock Arms has a mega amount outdoor space thanks to its sprawling beer garden. Behind the bar, you'll find craft ales, plus a wide choice of wines and spirits, while pub meals come in the form of beloved British classics and hearty sharing plates. Cheers.

Come for the tapas but stay for the stunning roof terrace, as Simon Shaw's glorious restaurant offers more than the usual Spanish fare. Alongside confit pork belly and chargrilled octopus, you'll be able to enjoy sangria, aperitifs and all kinds of cocktails at El Gato Negro.

What happens when you add an exclusive rooftop members' club to one of the city's hottest hotels? Head to Hotel Gotham, which boasts one of the best cocktail bars in Manchester, to find out. Think panoramic citywide views, fabulous service and a cracking menu of fine food and drink.

Terrace NQ

As its name would suggest, this stripped-back watering hole lies in the eclectic Northern Quarter. Head to Thomas Street where you'll find Terrace NQ fronting bare brick walls and simplistic furniture coupled with alfresco craft beers, wines and G&Ts.
